- New diesel engine places Clubman even closer to rivals
- CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km
- Deliveries start from April 2016
Less than six months since the new MINI Clubman went on sale, the range has been extended to include a new low-tax diesel model ideal for company car drivers.
Built at the MINI plant in Oxford, the new Clubman One D is available to order now with first deliveries starting from April 2016.
Under the bonnet is a three-cylinder TwinPower Turbo 1.5-litre diesel engine that offers 114bhp and 270Nm of torque, capable of accelerating the car from 0-62mph in 10.4 seconds.
A six-speed manual is standard on the One D Clubman, however company car drivers can also opt for a six-speed Steptronic auto transmission for around £1,500 more.
Headline figures impress with CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km and a combined fuel economy of 74.3mpg if equipped with the manual gearbox. With P11D prices for the manual starting at £21,320, the Clubman One D will slot into a 19 percent BIK tax band for the 2016/17 tax year and cost from £67 a month for a 20 percent tax payer.
Opt for the automatic gearbox and running costs suffer just a little, with a combined fuel economy of 72.4mpg and CO2 emissions up to 104g/km meaning a 20 percent tax band for the 2016/17 tax year and a BIK bill of £76 a month for a 20 percent tax payer.
Significantly bigger than the outgoing model with 100 litres more boot space on offer, the new Clubman has become a practical family car for user choosers, while retaining much of its character including those famous barn doors at the rear.
Joining Cooper, Cooper D and Cooper S models in the range, the new One D offers a whole host of standard kit ideal for company car drivers including sat-nav, cruise control, 16-inch alloys, automatic lights and wipers, DAB radio and the “Excitement Package”, which, among other things, projects a MINI logo from the driver’s side door mirror when the doors are opened and closed.
